To send a patch without first suffering the obligatory weeks-long
bikeshed discussion on what precious letter of the alphabet to
sacrifice for your short option needs would be ... well, it'd be just
darned unfair. :-)

Seriously, IMO, -i doesn't map well to a *no* ignores option for me.

Do you do this operation frequently enough to justify just setting
your .subversion/config global_ignores config option to the empty
string? If so, you could save yourself the hassle of a bikeshed
discussion, a patch composition, and the long option typing. :-)
